Remember when taking a swab test meant finding out whether or not you’re related to the Golden State killer?
Swab tests are looking pretty different these days. But you can still take one for the sake of knowing more about your ancestry if you choose (and it doesn’t go up your nose, either). Whether you want to figure out if you’re from royal lineage or discover the unique breakdown of your mutt’s mixed breeds, these DNA kits can get you the intel you need. Take your pick:
Featured in The New York Times and Reader’s Digest, Living DNA offers a full ancestry kit that helps you uncover your ancestry from 80,000 years ago until recent times. It delivers results for over 150 regions, allowing you to experience your ancestry at different points through history and discover the migration paths of your distant relatives. How cool is that? Get it on sale for $75.99.
This kit offers a unique look at both your genetics and ancestry. You’ll discover how genetics influence your diet, understand which supplements and workouts work best for your body type, and gain a deeper understanding of how your genes inform your global ancestry. The premium kit also comes with a detailed report that lets you in on your genetic risk for common skin conditions, including acne, eczema, photoaging, and more. You can get it on sale for $99.99, but if you want to do away with the skin report, you can still get the normal test kit for $79.99.
If you can’t figure out why all those fad diets and workouts don’t work, maybe your DNA will tell you. This kit helps you gain a better understanding of how your DNA impacts your fitness journey so you can make better decisions when it comes to taking care of your health. You’ll find out why your body reacts to certain foods and how your genes impact your ability to gain weight. It’s on sale for $119.99.

This kit offers the best of both worlds: you’ll be able to explore 500 years of your family ancestry from all over the world (complete with sub-regional breakdown) and unfurl the genetic variants that impact the way your body metabolizes vitamins and minerals. Not only will you discover where you truly came from, but you’ll also receive tips on how you can improve your overall wellbeing. For a limited time, you can get it on sale for $149.

For your dog
If you’re disappointed that you didn’t come from royal lineage, you have another chance in your dog. With this kit, you can discover what breed your pooch really is. It offers an all-inclusive report on your dog’s genetic background which covers its breed, ancestry, and even relatives. Get it on sale for $174.99.
With a simple cheek swab, this test will help you get to know your little four-legged friend better. Just under two weeks after sending in the sample, you’ll receive detailed reports that indicate your dog’s unique characteristics, from its personality traits and DNA composition to its specific breed mix and predisposition to disease. You can grab it on sale for $59.99.
But if you want more than just an overview of your dog’s characteristics, there’s also an option to get a full genetic screening which offers a report that lists down all the breeds found in your dog’s DNA by percentage, as well as a custom results certificate and comprehensive report of your furry friend’s genetic health risks and physical traits.
